Doug Ford's Etobicoke

View Doug Ford's Etobicoke in a larger map

Recently Doug Ford talked about the availability of libraries and how this is a problem:
“We have more libraries per person than any other city in the world.  I’ve got more libraries in my area than I have Tim Horton’s.”
Maureen O'Reilly corrected the record, pointing out to Cllr. Ford that he doesn't have to worry because Etobicoke has three times the number of Tim Hortons as libraries (39 to 13). 

What's worse than Ford's comment being untrue is that fact that he sees nothing wrong with prioritizing a doughnut chain over libraries. I recognize he's trying to say that private enterprise should be encouraged and government limited. But if that's the issue and not a regular folk vs. socialist library users wedge comparison, why not compare libraries to something more applicable like Chapters/Indigo?  

Either way, I thought I would be nice and map out all of the libraries and Tim Horton's for Ford above. You know, because I'm that kind of guy.
